    Are people actually doing this? I ask as I've swapped hundreds of eggs and received none, so I've ceased egg trading till I receive some of my own.

    BEWARE:
    When your basket is full and collected they are one-and-done. 10 doughnuts down the drain for this crappy money grab.

    If I had known that the baskets disappear once you empty them I wouldn't have wasted 20 donuts, not all of us have the luxury of buying donuts!

    I've traded a couple times. I always get the fifty blue eggs.

    I just went into my town now and to my shear dissapoinment, no eggs. Got to start thinking if myself more than others, would have had more prizes if I were more greedy. What can you do?

    Looks like I approached this one at the wrong angle, egg trading will most likly take off in a week or so once most prizes have been won I guess. Well hope so.

    Yeah once I have won most of the best prizes in either box I shall trade eggs for the other colour.

    Good plan!

    Can anyone tell me, does it tell you who donated eggs?

    When I collect the eggs in the basket I left out, will it list the names of who I have to thank? (Via my own egg donation)

    I've absolutely donated on purpose already. One of my neighbours is totally, totally awesome. Has a gorgeous SF and donated me TONS of Gift Bags over Christmas. (I never had enough bags to give back)

    The most logical thing to do is find a friend with the opposite dominate egg colour and trade exclusively. Or some enterprising artist could make siggy pics of eggs and those who wear them are saying I'm this colour dominate and I'm open for trading... I think, in theory this is supposed to make this event more social. But EA's theories never seem to work in our favour.

    You know what REALLY REALLY sucks moose balls? I have 2 games and they have the same dominate colour. BOOURNS!

    When I collected my first basket there was a cluster of white words which I think were names but they overlapped so I couldn't read them

    I can confirm. But with your warning, I broke out the camera to get the names, because damn. They go by really fast.

    I think they go in the tapped order. Bottom is first. kandycanada is on the top, and I tapped last.

    I think the idea is to swap the eggs you don't want for the eggs you do. I've already got the two best prizes from the pink and the blue boxes, so I've moved on to the gold box prizes. My common color is pink, so I trade all my pink eggs for blue eggs in my neighbors towns. Then I use my blue eggs for a chance at wining gold eggs. This is my strategy for now. Once I get the best prizes from the gold boxes, I'll go back to collecting the pink and blue prizes.

    I lost a lot of eggs too, so I won't be donating anymore. I also haven't gotten a basket yet and I tap several times a day. The baskets and the slow speed of getting eggs are the only things I really don't like about this event...
